review 1: This book contains sound advice. I have read it all before since I like to read about fitness and health, but it is still great information. The author makes her routine seem very "doable" for the average person even though she is an Olympic athlete.

I wasn't so sure about her workout plans at the end of the book...they seemed to lack enough cardio, especially for someone following her plan who is trying to lose weight.

So if you're looking for a get-fit quick book, you'll be disappointed. I would have like to see more on swimming, but I guess she ran out of space. Maybe that will be her next book! less

not appropriate for my physical limitations
